It is so worth leaving the casino one night to have dinner here. For starters, there is free valet parking right next to the restaurant. My husband and I liked the old Docks, but the expansion and renovation only added to an already great place to dine. Docks is the oldest restaurant in AC, dating back to the 1800s. If... More

Delicious food. The oysters are cold and fresh. All dishes were so good. Table of 10 and everyone loved their food. Extensive wine list. Desserts and specials were out of this world too. Live piano entertainment was there on a Wednesday night which was a nice touch.

My parents and I ate at Dock's in mid-May as part of a belated Mother's Day dinner. The positive: Our server was excellent and efficient, and the famous banana cream pie was as delicious as it had been during my prior visit to Dock's in 2015. My parents also appeared to enjoy their dishes -- the branzino, pecan-crusted salmon, and... More

I love the atmosphere, service and food here at Dock's. Secon trip in ten months and every bit as good as the first time around. Started off with a Negroni cocktail and the bartender knew his/her stuff because it was perfect! Tried their snapper crudo appetizer (which is smaller than some of the other choices but delicious) and followed that... More

Stopping by at 4PM on a Monday worked out great. If you enjoy oysters, $1 a piece was nice and the choice was fine and they were shucked perfectly, with plenty of juice in the shell. Drinks were a bit pricey $8-$10 which probably makes up for the fine selection of menu items during happy hour at super prices. Would... More

Loved the fresh, open remodel (but the room can get noisy). Oysters fresh and served properly, chowder is very good with rich not too thick broth, fresh clams, and tasty bacon. Crab sauté never disappoints.

Wasn't sure if we would be able to get a table because they were booked with reservations... went in to eat at the bar but a table became available. Enjoyed some apps at the bar during happy hour - $1 oysters were great!! Moved to a table and everything we each ordered was delicious. The soup and the entrees. Service... More

Great service and food. Leave room for dessert, Joe's cheese cake is excellent. Oysters are phenomenal. Salad was great to start our meal. Wide range of wines and drinks. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. There was a live piano player, a nice bar scene, and the service was professional. If I get back to Atlantic City, I will definitely eat here again.

If you're in AC Dock's is a great place for happy hour eats. We had $1 oysters (three kinds) and heavily discounted apps, from lobster mac & cheese to smoked fish dip and calamari. There's a reason it fill s up fast.
